Living in VUCA times

Living in VUCA times

There are endless opportunities in life when you take control and think differently.

We are living in VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) times, what feels like unprecedented change and an unrelenting pace of life. Many people, leaders, organisations and governments are struggling.

However, there are many opportunities for you to thrive in and shape this environment, and design & build the future, when you take control, think differently and self-manage.

Living in VUCA times

Blockers that can stop us from reaching our potential and living life to the full

Personal & External ConstraintsTM

In life, there can be many factors that get in the way of each of us reaching our potential and living the fullest and most satisfying life possible. We call them Personal & External Constraints. View some examples. If we don’t find ways to address or circumvent them, we can limit our potential in life & career.

Unintentional Poor LeadershipTM

We all strive to do our best and be happy. Unfortunately, we can all too easily suffer from what we call ‘Unintentional Poor Leadership’, which can be leadership of ourselves, others and organisations. View some examples. Unintentional Poor Leadership has a great ability to hide itself from the person in question. If left unchecked, it can derail us.

In order to thrive, we need to identify and use our Personal & External EnablersTM (factors that enable us to achieve success & wellbeing), address our Personal & External ConstraintsTM and limit Unintentional Poor LeadershipTM. This is what our services help you do.

Increasing your success & wellbeing

We’re focused on your success & wellbeing.

From evidence-based research and our work with super-successful Directors, Military Generals and Olympic Champions we have analysed what it takes to be super-successful and have wellbeing and crunched the analysis down into a framework.

Success & wellbeing are very personal and there is no ‘one secret formula’ or just ‘one thing’ that will help you achieve them. However, there are common elements and these are included in our framework and services.
